    Green Holiday: Happy Earth Hour!

    Happy Earth Hour everyone!  Earth Hour has become an annual tradition that originated in Sydney, Australia in 2007.  The original concept was developed in order to help bring awareness to climate change, but has grown into a worldwide phenomenon.  The holiday is nothing more than shutting off all your lights for one hour.  Fairly simple, right?  That is probably the reason why so many countries are now participating in this event.  The 2011 Earth Hour takes place today, March 26th, at 8:30PM-9:30PM (your local time).

    In 2007, the event started in Sydney with 2.2 million people and 2,000 businesses turning off their lights.  In 2010, the event had grown to the biggest Earth Hour ever.  Hundreds of millions of people across 128 countries all joined in to do their part to support the cause.  I think the concept is amazing because the idea is two-fold.  First, it shows how much of an impact lights and other electronics have on our lives.  Shutting everything off for one hour is extremely simple, but for some people, it is very difficult.  Secondly, the cause allows people to actually see the difference they make, a great motivation to make a change.  Shutting off lights reduces energy, reduces fossil fuel consumption, saves money, and many other great benefits.

    I think it is very impressive that businesses, along with the hundreds of millions of people, are also taking part to show that they are showing support as well.  I am excited to see the numbers for how many people participate this year!  Not only does the event encourage the Earth Hour, but they also stress going “beyond the hour”.  Encourage your family, friends, employees, or anyone else you can think of to participate tonight and to also think of other things that they can do to help the cause every other day of the year.  Together, with causes like this, people can truly make a difference.  Have a Happy Earth Hour!
